The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Kate Winslow (Schooner), U14281, aground, 11 Jun 1887

Full Text

Sault Ste. Marie.---The schooner KATE WINSLOW, in tow of the steambarge BUSINESS, struck on the Canadian side of the Sault River at Sailor's Encampment Sunday, knocking a hole into her starboard bow. As the vessel made three feet of water inside of twenty minutes, Captain Henderson deemed it necessary to beach her at the foot of Little Mud Lake on the American side. It is thought that on raising her, a diver can repair her to either proceed on her voyage, or to tow to a dry dock. She is loaded with 1,300 tons of coal from Toledo, consigned to West Superior.
